  49. structures of the vestibule include
    • urinary meatus
    • vaginal introitus
    • ducts of Skene
    • ducts of Bartholin
  50. 3 divisions of uterus
    • corpus-fundus
    • isthmus-transition zone-(lower uterine segment during late pregnancy)
    • cervix
  51. female reproductive cycle-menstrual cycle is driven by feedback loop with anterior pituitary secretion and ovaries. lasting normally
    28 days on average but 20-45 possible
  52. menstrual cycle divided into 2 cycles
    • ovarian cycle
    • endometrial cycle
  53. during ovarian cycle, which hormones are secreted to mature & release ovum
    FSH & LH from anterior pituitary gland
  54. Follicular phase is
    As FSH &  LH rise slightly the ovum matures. Usually day 1 to 14.
  55. ovulatory phase,
    near middle of 28 day cycle and 2 days before ovulation, LH rises greatly. This rise of LH and FSH cause follicular estrogen to production to fall & progesterone to rise that stimulates final maturation & release of ovum.
  56. Luteal phase
    begins with ovulation. after ovulation & under influence of LH the remaining cells stay as corpus luteum for 12 days. The levels of FSH & LH decrease due to higher levels of estrogen & progesterone. If ovum fertilized then it secretes HCG and corpus luteum stays for early pregnancy. If not, then FSH & LH fall to low levels and corpus luteum regresses causing decrease levels of estrogen & progression which causes menstration as uterine lining breaks down. The loss of estrogen & progresterone from corpus luteum at end of one cycle stimulates anterior putitiary gland to secrete FSH & LH causing a new cycle to start.
  57. Ovarian has 3 cycles what are they and what days are their range?
    • Follicular phase- day 1-14
    • Ovulatory phase- middle of 28 day cycle to 2 days before ovulation
    • Luteal phase- begins with ovulation to day 28(start of menstruation if not pregnant)
  58. Proliferative phase
    occurs as ovum matures & is released during first half of ovarian cycle. Basal layer forms new endometrial epithelium & glands under stimulation of estrogen produced by maturing ovarian follicle. As ovulation approaches the endometrial glands secrete thin, stringy mucus that aid in entry of sperm into uterus.
  59. endometrium has 2 layers
    • basal layer-nearest myometrium & regenerates functional layer after menstruation & childbirth 
    • functional layer-above basal layer and sheds during period & after childbirth in the lochia
  60. secretory phase,
    occurs during last half of ovarian cycle. endometrium thickens to thickest of 5-6mm under corpus luteum production of estrogen & progesterone
  61. menstrual phase,
    if not fertilization, the corpus luteum regresses & estrogen & progesterone fall. 2 days before menstruation vasospasms of endometrial blood vessels occur and causes endometrium to become ishemic & necrotic. necrotic areas seperate from basal layer and start the menstrual flow which normally last 5 days
  62. endometrial cycle has 3 phases and how do they correlate with ovarian cycle
    • proliferative-1st half of ovarian cycle to ovulation
    • secretory-2nd half of ovarian cycle
    • menstrual-occurs if no pregnancy occurs
  63. cervical mucus changes during menstrual cycle are,
    • normally thick, scant & sticky
    • just before ovulation becomes it becomes clear, thin & elastic
  64. define Spinnbarkeit
    refers to elasticity of cervical mucus
  65. myoepithelial cells surround alveoli  to contract and eject milk into ductual system when signaled by oxytocin produced in the _______ pituitary gland
  66. acinar cells inside the alveoli extract necessary substances from mammary blood supply to create milk when breast are stimulated by _______ pituitary gland.
  67. during pregnancy high levels of _____ & _______ produced by placenta stimulate growth of alveoli & ductual system
    estrogen, progesterone
  68. _____ secretions by anterior pituitary gland stimulate milk production but inhibited by estrogen & progesterone
